Colour me Good by Mel Elliott


The Colour Me Good books are created by the I Love Mel brand, the work of Mel Elliott a UK based artist and publisher, who also illustrated the Colour Me Swoooon and Colour Me Girl Crush books, published by Pavilion in the UK and Penguin in the USA.

The Colour me Good series is an ever expanding range of books which include Colour Me Good Benedict Cumberbatch, Colour me Good 90’s, Colour Me Swiftly (Colour Me Good), Ginger Colour Me Good, Colour Me Good Ryan Gosling, Colour Me Good: Harry Styles, Colour Me Good London, Colour Me Good Jamie Dornan, Colour Me Good Tom Hiddleston, Colour Me Good Arrggghhhh!!, Colour Me Good Hip Hop, Colour Me Good: James Franco, and Colour Me Good Eddie Redmayne.

After Mel Elliott graduated from the Royal College of Art in 2007, she began designing printed products including colouring books which were heavily influenced by pop culture, celebrity and glossy magazines. The colouring books were developed when Mel realised that many of the things we enjoyed as children, such as colouring in, could still be enjoyed by adults, if only the colouring books grew up as well – this thought sparked the idea that became Colour me Good!
